This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Late This Afternoon and Tonight.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are possible almost anywhere
in the outlook area, with storm chances starting off in far
western and northern counties late this afternoon into this
evening, and then gradually spreading farther east and southeast
as the night wears on. Although severe storms are fairly unlikely,
a few stronger storms with small hail and gusty winds are
certainly possible, especially before 10 PM, and mainly northwest
of a line from Phillipsburg Kansas, to Grand Island and Osceola

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

On Thursday morning, a few weak thunderstorms could linger for a
few hours past sunrise, mainly in far eastern portions of the

Later Thursday afternoon, there is a slight chance for isolated
thunderstorms mainly in Nebraska counties along and north of
Interstate 80. Should any storms manage to develop, they could be
on the stronger side with at least small hail and gusty wind

Beyond Thursday, there are two additional time frames with
thunderstorm chances for various portions of the outlook
area...Friday evening through late Saturday night, and also
Monday evening through Tuesday. It is still too early to
confidently assess the potential for severe storms for this
weekend and beyond, but there are early signs that Saturday
afternoon and evening bear watching for a possible threat.

Turning to heat concerns, each afternoon and early evening between
Sunday and Tuesday is expected to feature heat index values as
high as 100 to 105 degrees, particularly within southern and
eastern portions of the outlook area. Although still several days
away and subject to change somewhat, Monday currently appears to
be the overall-worst day for heat-related concerns.


Spotters are encouraged to report any hail or wind gusts of at
least 50 MPH that might occur.
